Plane soles should be mostly flat

02-18-2012 09:07 PM by Paul Sellers | 14 comments »

Here is a post I did recently and now want to show you how to do it through a short video. This is not the same plane shown below but it is all the same procedure I use for smoothing planes: Something I have wanted to post on for a while. Next week I will be using a Stanley #4 at the Springfield New Jersey Show and the Fredericksburg Virginia Show Masterclasses I will be teaching for The Woodworking Shows show. It’s an eBay find for £8 – $12. This plane is and always was an amazing...

Skill Building #2: Winding Sticks

05-20-2012 12:41 PM by lysdexic | 5 comments »

With a nod to Jim Tolpin and the New Traditional Woodworker I am going to attempt to complete all of his skill building projects. I would submit that my bench hooks would qualify as my first project in this theme. These winding stick are a hybrid of Tolpin’s project and the blog entry by Schwarz. The sticks are made from a curly walnut stick and the inlays are poplar. The pics are pretty much self explanatory. No hold fast holes yet but illustrates a benefit of the split top. ...

Christopher Schwarz at Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event [video]

04-18-2008 04:49 AM by kem | 10 comments »

Last week’s event in Chicago was fantastic. Being a novice, I really learned a lot from the many demonstrations and from getting to play with some fine tools. A couple of highlights for me were being able to try out Chris Schwarz’s ebony infill smoothing plane (by Wayne Anderson) and hearing Jeff Miller discuss the design and production of his beautiful Cantata chair. I was disciplined enough not to buy anything, although when I got home I ordered a large shoulder plane (Veritas, ...

Making a Router Plane

03-18-2013 08:37 PM by nobuckle | 7 comments »

Ever since I saw Mafe's router plane I’ve had the desire to make one. As I do most often I look here on LJs for inspiration. Well, I found it. As I searched I came across this gem of a router plane made by Tinnocker. Tinnocker got his inspiration from Mafe’s design as well. I used a picture of Tinnockers design to come up with my version of a router plane. The body of the plane is hard maple. The handles are from some old chair spindles I had laying around, The plane iron is a ...

Building My Roubo Bench #1: Why I Decided to Build This

01-17-2012 03:13 AM by Andy Panko | 4 comments »

So after reading Christopher Schwarz’s book Workbenches: From Design and Theory to Construction and Use, I decided it was time I built myself a “real” workbench. I’ve had various bench-like structures that I’ve used as assembly tables, clamping areas, clutter storage, etc. My current “bench” is basically a large custom cabinet base with a formica top and an integrated Kreg measuring fence built on it that I use for making cuts on my miter saw....

Not Just Any Box #1: Preparing the Way

01-16-2008 11:26 PM by YorkshireStewart | 14 comments »

I’d been living with this board of burr / burl or pippy oak in the workshop for five or six years and must have picked it up and put it back down at least a hundred times (approx!). I have done quite a few boxes in the past with lids something like this: but I always intended that this piece would be used in a different way, and for something a little bit special. Though I’ve made many boxes, I have never thought of doing one for me, so this challenge presents an opportunity. ...

Evolution of my router planer #1: First Version: 1.0

10-19-2010 06:02 PM by TZH | 9 comments »

One of the things I found out very early on in my type of woodworking is that the slabs I use in my projects are often in dire need of planing. The problem with this is the thickness planer I had was not large enough to accommodate the width of most of these slabs. So, I began reviewing my old book and magazine libraries and surfing the Net to try and find something else that might meet the need for the type of work I planned to do. The results of my search were mixed. The very first opti...
